    I worked at Hinshaw & Culbertson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful mentoring and educational opportunities. I appreciated the freedom and flexibility extended to each person's individualized practice. Great flex time options and maternity leave plan.

    Cons

    Minimum billable hour requirement and practice group structure where the person deciding your compensation may have never met you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn through associates. You need a middle level between capital partners and first year associates.

    Pros

    Nice people for the most part and great hands on litigation experience.

    Cons

    Unchallenging and repetitive work. Consumer financial services practice group is a foreclosure mill with debt collection work included. Avoid. Other practice groups may be ok. Partners have favorites. Billables are high but pay is below market rate. Look elsewhere. Better firms with sexy resume building work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen.
